RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course – National Powerboat Certificate

The RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course – National Powerboat Certificate – provides the skills and background knowledge needed by the competent powerboat driver and is the basis of the International Certificate of Competence.

It aims to teach boat handling and seamanship in powerboats. It focuses on low speed close quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving at planing speed, and collision regulations.

The course can be taken inland or on the coast and your certificate will be endorsed accordingly. The course may be conducted in a variety of boat types, both planing and displacement, and the certificate issued will be endorsed to show the type of boat in which the training took place.
